Its been awhile since I wrote. Its also been awhile since I knew why. I’ve had plenty I want to say, to share, to rant about, to celebrate. So many things. But I could not get the words to form into coherent sentences.
Then today it hit me.
More accurately, the dam released.
And all those words began rolling out in a big jumble.
What did I do differently today?
I sat in silence.
Now those of you that follow me might be confused. I have a mindfulness practice. I meditate more often than not. So how could I not have had silence?
Guided meditations. Or music in the background meditations. Or the kid in the other room with the TV on meditations. or or or …
Today, for the first time in a long long time, I sat in just silence. Sure there’s white noise – the refrigerator, the washing machine, the birds outside, the dog snoring. But it isn’t the same.
Usually there is a TV on somewhere, or a TED talk, or a Periscope (I’m quite addicted), an audiobook, or even just music. Noise. So much noise. Too much noise for my creative little brain.
Now I know better.
Today, Silence becomes a part of my daily routine. I invite you to try it.
In Light & Love
Great read! I feel that sometimes all the distraction cloud our thinking. I try to start every work day with silence so I can gather my thoughts and have a productive day. 🙂
